Some of mine are Katherine Hodgkin and these come back every year, planted in ordinary soil, not particularly well drained.

Container grown Acer

Have a look at the Hippopottering website I've bought a couple of trees from them at flower shows.

Good drainage means soil that doesn't become waterlogged such as clay soils. I grow my acers in pots in John Innes ericaceous compost with some grit mixed in.

That's a lot of trees. Had to google Mayhaw, which turns out to be a Crataegus, which is a relation of our hawthorn tree.

You need to put enough water in to get the top of the compost damp, it will go darker. So you might put small amounts of water in, let it soak up and see if you need to add any more. If you put too much water in you'll have to tip it out.
